Mother Superior

Mother Superior Linda Ann Kreeger O.S.MM. of the Order of Saint Mary Magdalene of our Non-Denominational Christian Ministry the New Horizons Church of the Celtic Cross & Director of the Sisterhood associated with this part of our ministry… And yes folks we are very aware that we are the ONLY non-denominational ministry that has a sisterhood of nuns. However, Mother Superior made some very strong points as to why we should have our own order in the Non-Denominational Church and so we have it.

Also meet,
Mother Superior Lady Sheila Tracey Sherwood O.S.B. of the Order of Saint Brigid of Ireland of our Independent Catholic Ministry the Traditional Old Catholic Church of the Celtic Cross & Director of the Sisterhood associated with that part of the ministry… And here to ladies, we believe we are the only Independent Catholic Church Ministry that has an order of nun’s as well. And I must say that the dedication shown by these women is second to “none”. ( lol, a little play on words)…

Remember, were here for you, today, tomorrow and for the rest of your life. In other words, forever more. That sure sounds good. Good to know that your not alone in your love and support for Christ Jesus. Amen.

Just food for thought !!!

If it is the littler things in life that make it better, than what of the big things??? A little brotherly love can go a long way but, a lot of love can heal most everything.

Isn’t it wonderful to know how much the Holy Trinity loves you. You might even say the love that you receive is three times as much love as opposed to not knowing the love of Jesus Christ in your life. Just food for thought !!!

May you always have three times as much love around you all the days of your life,

Bishop Andrew R. M. Manley  DD., O.S.P., O.S.M.  Universal life Church of the Celtic Cross, An Independent Catholic Church and Non-Denominational Christian Church Ministry

FUN FACTS !!! Do you know the Twelve Apostles of Ireland ?

Salutations Warriors, Bishop Andrew here, I do a lot of research for the ministry and every once and awhile something pops up that catches my interest. Mostly because Celtic Cross Ministry is the newest Irish American and World Wide Ministry on the planet, and we are also the fastest growing Christian Ministry that deals with a true and very proud ethnic heritage. On occasions we find it interesting when something comes along that we feel folks around the world including our fellow brothers and sisters in the Roman Catholic Church, may not know about their own faith.

Now with that said I came across the title of the blog piece from a Wikipedia search, whom I am so very thankful for their collaboration with others on this subject matter. In apart, to help folks like you and I, to have a better understanding of the “History of our faith, Christianity”. Centuries in the making even if it is just a glimpse into the characters of those that have show a dedication and love for Christ and His ministry of faith that is Christianity. The Twelve Apostles of Ireland was a topic that I as an Irish American had never heard of. Not even when in my youth being raised by the Franciscan Sisters at our little convent here in Ohio. Convent might be a slight stretch of the word however, we did just called it home.

Nonetheless, this subject definitely caught my attention and I thought it might be nice to help you, and others around the world to explore the faith in a new and interesting way. Most every person in the world with the exceptions of a few, celebrate this heritage at least one day a year. That day many folks, maybe even you, call themselves Irish with the celebration of the feast of Saint Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland. Maybe in this small way you might understand and appreciate the awesome history of the heritage of this small but very great Irish Nation.

So read on and if your curiosity peeks during your glances, than by all means click the links and follow where it takes you. That’s just half the fun of it. I am very sure you will be very, very blessed for taking an interest in the Saints that made a difference in their time as we here at Celtic Cross Ministry and the Christian Warrior Network pray, that you do with your life. Making a difference in a positive way in your personal journey through life, is one of the gifts God gives you each day. And that is to try and not only make a difference in the world but make it positive as well. Just as these holy men of God did in their journey here on earth.

I pray you will enjoy you experience through the works of people that thought you should know. I say for now, God Bless and have an awesome day. Oh, and remember, knowledge is power. Besides being great for trivia games…

Sincerely blessed because of you, and them,  Bishop Andrew R. M. Manley, DD., O.S.P.

Twelve Apostles of Ireland

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

St. Finnian imparting his blessing to the Twelve Apostles of Ireland

This article is about the group of Irish saints. For the IRA unit sometimes known as the Twelve Apostles, see The Squad (Irish Republican Army unit).

The Twelve Apostles of Ireland (also known as Twelve Apostles of Erin)(Irish: An Dá Aspal Déag) were twelve early Irish monastic saints of the sixth century who studied under St Finian at his famous monastic school Clonard Abbey at Cluain-Eraird (Eraird’s Meadow), now Clonard in County Meath.[1]

Contents

Dá apstol décc na hÉrenn

The twelve saints are grouped together as such in the text Dá apstol décc na hÉrenn (“The Twelve Apostles of Ireland”, the modern Irish being An Dá Aspal Déag na hÉireann). The text is preserved in a manuscript belonging to Michael O’Clery, Brussels, Bibliothèque Royale MS 2324–2340, and elsewhere. When the so-called twelve apostles of Ireland are gathered together for a feast in the house of St Finian, a magical flower appears in their midst. It is decided that a voyage to the flower’s homeland is to be undertaken by one of them, the choice of person then being determined by casting lots. When however, the lot falls on the old Brendan of Birr, his younger namesake Brendan moccu Altae goes in his stead. Brendan sets out with many companions and undergoes many adventures, much as related in Brendan’s Life.[2]

Clonard Abbey

Main article: Clonard Abbey

In Early Christian Ireland the druidic tradition was succeeded or absorbed by the new Christian faith. Study of Latin learning and Christian theology in monasteries flourished. Clonard Abbey, situated on the River Boyne in modern County Meath was one of the main monastic schools. During the sixth century, some of the most significant names in the history of Irish Christianity studied at the Clonard monastery. It is said that the average number of scholars under instruction at Clonard was 3,000. Twelve students who studied under St. Finian became known as the Twelve Apostles of Ireland.[1]

The Twelve Apostles

The Twelve Apostles of Erin, as they were known by old Irish writers, are said to have been:

Finnen of Cluain Iraird, now Clonard in Meath. He died in the year 522.
Ciaran of Cluain Mic Nois, now Clonmacnoise, on the Shannon, in the barony of Garrycastle, County Offaly, died in the year 549.
Brenainn of Birra – St. Brenainn, or Brendan, of Birra, now Birr, County Offaly. He died on the 29th of November 571.
Brenainn, the son of Finnloga, the patron saint of the see of Clonfert, in County Galway, was born in 484, and died in 577 aged 94.
Colum Mac Crimthainn, was abbot of Tir-da-glas, now Terryglass, in the barony of Lower Ormond, in the county of Tipperary, and died in 552, the same year as St. Finen of Clonard.
Colum Cille. – St. Columbkille was born in the year 521, and died in the year 597, aged 75. Columba was an outstanding figure among the Gaelic missionary monks who some of his advocates claim introduced Christianity to the Kingdom of the Picts during the early medieval period.
Mobhi Clarainech, patron of Glasnaidhen, now Glasnevin, near Dublin. He died on 12th of October 545
Ruadhain of Lothra – St. Ruadain, the patron of Lothra, now Lorrha, in County Tipperary. He died on the 15th of April 584.
Ninnadh the Pious, the patron of the parish of Inis Muighe Samh, now Inismacsaint, in the north-west of County Fermanagh. He was alive in 530 but the year of his death is uncertain.
Molaisi, the son of Nadfraech, he was the brother of Aengus, the first Christian king of Munster and died in 570.
Cainnech Mac h-Ui Dalann, the patron of Aghaboe in County Laois, who died in 599 at the age of 84.
Finnen of Magh Bile, now Movilla, in County Down. He died in the year 576.

Just an UPDATE… NEW, CCTV…

Blessings to you today and every day. I just want to take a moment and give you an opportunity to understand what God wants of you. The Holy Bible is not a book of do not, but rather a book of does for your life, so that you will have more of it, abundantly. This ministry of the Universal Life Church of the Celtic Cross, only wants to help you to have a better quality of life. And also to show you a positive direction for your path through it.

In this past month we started an out reach program through the YouTube web site. We call it ” CCTV “, and no it is not closed circuit television, but rather Celtic Cross TV. In setting up this media program it is brought to you from the heart. No it is not a truly professional production. Rather it is me and all of my imperfectness being straight forward with you and trying to help you to look at your life through a different set of eyes, so to speak.

At this moment there are 22 different types of video productions for you to watch and listen to. There are several different themes that have been done so that you may find one more to your liking than another or even all to your liking. And yes maybe even none as well.

What is on this website is an experience that we hope will help you to grow and even encourage you to do more with your life, instead of less. For life is a gift and it should never be wasted.

Anyways, here is the link to the CCTV broadcasts, we hope you enjoy them and keep checking back to see what is new. ( http://www.youtube.com/1celticcrossministry )…

Sincerely yours in the service of Christ our Lord,
Bishop Andrew….
